Question:

I would like to run the program on a different computer. How can I transfer the NemSLock license?



Information:

You can use the "Export/import - license transfer" tool to transfer an Allplan license temporarily from the registered computer to a different computer (a laptop, for example).
Licenses are always transferred between two specific computers. When you export the license from the source computer, you need to precisely specify the destination computer to which the license is to be transferred. A registered, running Allplan version must be installed on the source computer. At least a trial version of Allplan must be installed on the destination computer. Whether this trial version is still valid or has already expired is irrelevant.



Note:

The license should notbe transferred temporarily when you have bought a new computer and you want to run the program permanently on this new computer. The temporary license transfer is limited to 30 days. For more information please consult the online Help.


Answer:

Open the Services application -> Utilities -> License -> License Manager (NemSLock).

Select theExport/import - license transfertool.

You can choose between a transfer that is "Directly on the network" and one that is "Indirectly by transfer file".

Creating computer ID files for the source and destination computers

First you need to create two computer-specific ID files: one for the source computer and one for the destination computer. These files are valid until you change the hardware of the corresponding computer. If the hardware changes (adding a hard disk or a DVD/CD drive, for example), you need to create a new computer ID file.

To create a computer-specific ID file:

  1. Start the Nemetschek License Manager by clicking Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager.
  2. Click the Export/import - license transfericon at the top and select Indirectly by transfer file.The "Offline License Transfer" dialog box is displayed.
  3. Select Create computer ID file.
  4. Click Browse...and specify the path where you want to save the computer ID file.
  5. Click Finish.


Note:

The folder you select must exist. The computer-specific COMPUTERNAME.nslid file is created in this folder.
If the source computer and the destination computer are connected on the network, you can specify the source and destination paths over the network without having to use storage media or email attachments.

Exporting the license file for the destination computer

  1. Using the source computer, start the Nemetschek License Manager by clickingStart -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager.
  2. At the top click Export/import - license transfer -> Indirectly by transfer file.The "Offline License Transfer" dialog box is displayed.
  3. Select the Export license option. The Import Computer IDdialog box is displayed.
  4. To export the license for a specific destination computer, do the following: Click Browse..., and select the computer ID file of the destination computer (name_of_destination_computer.nslid) and clickOpen. Click Next.
  5. For the time limit, specify after how many days the license file is automatically returned to the source computer.
  6. Click Create License Transfer Fileand clickOKto confirm. A file (name_of_destination_computer_date_time.NslTransfer) is created for the destination computer.


As soon as you have exported the license, Allplan no longer starts on the source computer.

Importing the license file into the destination computer

  1. Using the destination computer, start the Nemetschek License Manager by clickingStart -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager.
  2. At the top click Export/import - license transfer -> Indirectly by transfer file.The "License Transfer" dialog box is displayed.

Question:

I have installed Allplan using the temporary Softlock license ("customer#_seat_psd.nslock") and "Trial" is displayed for its status in the License Manager.
How can I register this license?



Answer:

You use License Manager to create a registration request and send it by email to register@nemetschek.de.
In response, you get a final license file. Installing this license removes the lime limit.
Below is a description of the necessary steps.



Notes:

  • Using the temporary license, you can start Allplan as a trial version. You can work with Allplan without any restrictions for 30 days.
    After expiration of this period, Allplan starts as a viewer only. However, you can still request and install the final license.
  • When running Windows Vista, start Nemetschek License Manager as the administrator:
    Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager
    Click "License Manager" with the right mouse button and choose "Run as administrator" on the shortcut menu.




How to proceed:

1. Request a license registered for your computer

  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start - (All) Programs - Nemetschek - Nemetschek Softlock 2006 - License Manager(or Services application -> Utilities -> License -> License Manager (NemSLock)).

    When running Windows Vista, start License Manager as the system administrator: click Start - (All) Programs - Nemetschek - Nemetschek Softlock 2006 - License Manager.
    Click License Managerwith the right mouse button. On the shortcut menu, click Run as administrator.
  2. Select the seat you want to register so that it is highlighted in blue.

  3. Click License requestat top left.

    The License Request Wizardstarts. The Welcome to the license request wizarddialog box provides information on the steps that follow.
  4. Click Next >.
    The Customer detailsdialog box opens.

    Note: Editing customer details requires administrator privileges. If you do not have these privileges, you will see a corresponding message. Cancel NemSLock License Manager and start again by selecting the Run as administrator option on the shortcut menu.
  5. Enter the necessary details:

    - If the Client IDhas eight zeros (00000000) and the CD Keyhas eight capital F's (FFFFFFFF), you selected the Trial license for temporary useoption when you installed Allplan.
    In this case, install the personal license for temporary use before you create the registration request.

    - If Client IDand CD Keydo not match the numbers printed on your delivery note (for example, typing errors, small letters and capital letters mixed up), you can enter Client ID and CD Key manually.

    - Fill out all the fields.

    Make sure you enter your email address correctly, because registered licenses and replies to status queries of license will be sent to the address you specify here.

    Note:Check the entries for Client ID(customer number) and CD Key , making sure these numbers are the same as those printed on the delivery note you received from Allplan. The CD Keyusually consists of the numbers 0 to 9 and the capital letters A to F.

    Tip: You can also find these numbers in the personal license file for temporary use (*_psd.nslock). Open the license file in an editor and scroll down to the end of the file. You can then copy the license codes displayed after CUSTOMERand CDKEYto the Clipboard and paste them into the appropriate boxes.
  6. Click Next >.
  7. Select the Program, Versionand Seatand click Next >.

    Note: If the Client IDis invalid (for example, when you use a trial license) you cannot confirm the dialog box by clicking OK. Instead, you will see a corresponding message.
  8. Specify how to send the registration file and click Next >.

    Start email program ...
    The program creates and saves the register.txt file before it opens your default email program. The program automatically attaches the registration file to the email and enters register (please no spam) @ (please no spam) nemetschek.defor the address.

    Save the registration file ...
    The program creates and saves the register.txt file before it opens the folder with the registration file in Windows Explorer. Now you can use all the options provided by Windows Explorer: for example, you can attach the file to an email, copy it to a computer with Internet access and so on.

    In addition, you can see the data that were written to the registration file.
  9. Click Finish.
  10. Click Close to exit NemSLock License Manager.


You will receive a reply by email within a few minutes. This email provides information on the registration process and usually includes the registered license file.

2. Install the license file

Shortly after you sent the registration request to 'register@nemetschek.de' as described in step 1, the final license file will be sent to the email address you specified in the registration request.
Install this license file as follows:

  • Save the license file to any folder on the hard disk.
    If the license comes as a zip file, extract it.
  • Next, install the license file by double-clicking it ("customer#_seat.nslock").
    Confirm the dialog box.
  • As an alternative, you can also use License Manager to install the license file (Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager).

Question:
I purchased a new license and received a Product Key for Allplan. However, I work with an earlier Allplan version. How can I install and license Allplan 2015 or an earlier version despite the new license?


Answer:

Allplan 2016 introduced a new protection system. Since then licensing has been based on CodeMeter by Wibu Systems AG. You can no longer use Softlock (NemSLock) or hardlocks with Allplan. For running Allplan, you get a Product Key by email. Using this key, you can activate your license online.

This new license is not downward compatible. Consequently, you cannot use it for earlier Allplan versions.

For licensing earlier versions, you require the Client ID and CD Key. You can find this information in the delivery note or invoice. Instead of a temporary license, use the appropriate trial license to install Allplan 2015 or an earlier version. Then generate a registration request to license and activate the modules you purchased.

Note:
If you use a license server for which you purchased an additional license, please read the separate document or contact support.de@allplan.com. We will show you how to add the new license to the license server.

If you want to install Allplan 2015 or an earlier version, use a trial license to install the version you need.

Downloading Allplan:
Make sure the Allplan version you install is always up-to-date. In other words, it should include the latest hotfixes and service releases.
You can download the current Allplan version from Allplan Connect or the FTP server.

For the Client ID, enter your customer number. You can find your customer number in the letteror delivery notethat came with Allplan.
For the CD Key, enter your CD Key, which you can also find in the letter or delivery note. Make sure you use small letters and capital letters accordingly.

Question:

What are the reasons why I cannot modify the format properties (pen thickness, color, ...) of elements in a DWG/DXF file I have just imported?



Answer:

There are four reasons why these elements cannot be modified.

1st -the elements are smart symbols:

  • To retain the smart symbols but still be able to modify the elements, select Modify -> Bonus Tools -> Smart Symbols -> Modify Smart Symbol(until V2006: Modify -> Bonus Tools -> Smart Symbols -> Modify Display Parameters) and click the relevant element. Now you can modify it (using Modify Format Properties, for example). For more detailed information on how to modify smart symbols, please contact us.
  • If you do not want to retain the smart symbol, you can also resolve it: Modify -> Bonus Tools -> Smart Symbols -> Unlink Smart Symbol, select the smart symbol(s) you want to resolve and click the right mouse button to confirm.
  • To resolve the smart symbols during import, select the file to be imported, click the"Options..."button,open the "Advanced Settings" tab (until Allplan 2008 "Advanced Transfer Settings")and select the"Smart symbol"check box in the"Explode elements" area. To confirm the dialog box, click OKand open the file.


2nd - theelements are composite elements:

  • To explode a composite element, select Modify -> Advanced Draft -> Explode Composite Element. Select the composite element(s).
  • To resolve the composite elements during import, select the file to be imported, click the "Options..." button, open the"Advanced Settings" tab" (until Allplan 2008: "Advanced Transfer Settings") andselect the "Composite elements"check box in the"Explode compounds" area. To confirm the dialog box, click OKand open the file.


3rd - the elements are on frozen layers:

  • To modify these elements, you first have to set the corresponding layers to modifiable. Open the layer selection by clickingFormat -> Select, Set Layers.On theSelect Layer/Visibilitytab, set all the layers to modifiable.


4th - the elements have the "from layer" format property:

  • To find this out, click an element with the right mouse button and selectFormat Propertieson the shortcut menu: pen thickness, line type or line color is not available for elements with the "from layer" format property.

Question:

How can I output a test plot with different data types used in Allplan?



Solution:

Allplan comes with drawing files containing test data that can be used for this purpose.

If necessary, create a new project and copy the drawing files with the test data to this new project.

Open ProjectPilot: Allplan -> File -> ProjectPilot - Admin.

Set the external path to the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder.
Click 'External path' with the right mouse button and, on the shortcut menu, choose 'Select external path'.
Select the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder: c:\Programs\Nemetschek\Allplan\New\Testplot, for example.

The following layouts and drawing files are available:

  • Layout 1 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Layout 2 - Test Plot Muster & Schaffur / Patterns & Hatching
  • Layout 3 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Drawing file 25 - Füllflächen + Stifte / Fills + Pens
  • Drawing file 26 - Muster / Patterns (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 27 - Schraffuren / Hatching (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 100 - Allplan Test Drawing File (Version 2008 and later)


Copy these layouts and drawing files to the new project.
Select the relevant drawing files with the right mouse button and choose 'Copy to ...' on the shortcut menu.
Select the new project.

If necessary, create a layout, place the drawing files in this layout, specify an output device and and print the layout.

Note:

Make the following settings to ensure that the data is output correctly:

  • Select "white" for the background color.
  • Turn off "Color stands for pen" in "Show/Hide".
  • Turn off "Surface elements in background of each document" on the "Selection" tab of "Plot Layouts".
  • Use Windows drivers for printing.
  • For HP plotters, select the "Avoid out of memory condition" or "Output as a bitmap" option in the plotter properties.
  • For optimum color output with sRGB values, apply the settings described in the FAQ entitled Color adjustment - Windows drivers and Nemetschek vector drivers.

Notes:

Colors in printouts can vary depending on several factors such as

  • Output device used
  • Paper used
  • Ink used
  • Driver type used (Windows or Nemetschek drivers)

In particular, colors can differ regarding

  • Color display
  • Brightness


Colors in printouts can even vary if you use the same output device but different Windows drivers.
On-screen display can be influenced by various factors such as different settings for contrast and color temperature.

As the possible settings are so widespread, you can see that it is essential to print out test data in advance.
